The desperation of the People’s Democratic Party candidates Mr. Segun Adewale to clinch the senatorial seat of Lagos West took a dangerous dimension as he personally led policemen and thugs to attacked the Campaign office of Hon. Solomon Adeola, the APC senatorial candidate for Lagos West at No. 32 Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja at about 7.15pm.
Personally wielding a pump action rifle, APC party supporters who took to their heels heard Mr. Adewale shouting for Hon Adeola to come out as he released a volley of shots into the office. The gate was damaged as well as the rear windshield of Hon. Adeola Toyota Land cruiser Jeep parked inside the office premises. Equally bullet pellets damaged the exterior of the office room of Hon Adeola’s office.
The DPO of Ikeja has been informed and as I write is on his way to the office.
It will be recalled that Mr. Adewale has been going about with Police men and thugs shooting sporadically into air and generally intimidating innocent citizens.
The attack today is a brazen assassination attempts as both the vehicle and personal office of Hon Adeola was hit by bullets fired by PDP aspirant who came in his branded campaign vehicle to carry out the attack.
As at the time of the attack hon. Adeola was in his office attending to party supporters after a visit to Awori Obas earlier in the day.
